    It does not affect buyers.

    From eBay (not from the Daily Mail): https://sellercentre.ebay.co.uk/busi...17/vat-changes
    Which means that the Chinese drop shippers who pretend to have a UK vat number will at least pay VAT on their ebay fees....

    ...just punched some numbers into a calculator.
    For a non-VAT registered business:
    Basic level
    Fee = £25
    VAT = £5
    Number of listings per month: 300.
    Effective increase per listing: 1.67 pence.

    Featured level
    Fee: £69
    VAT: £13.80
    Number of listings per month: 1800.
    Effective increase per listing: 0.77 pence.

    Anchored level
    Fee: £269
    VAT: £53.80
    Number of listings per month: Unlimited.
    Effective increase per listing: 53.8/unlimited.

    Note: this is based on the number of listings, not the number of sales.
    So if the guy with a basic account sells 50 units of a product, the additional cost per sale is 0.03 pence.

    How many different listings does your business need to make?

    (BTW this whole pricing thing explains why many business sellers will have several items under one listing, where you then go in, pick the item and the various options, then it gives you a price)

    No, and I'm not evading it either.
    You asked an incomplete question - not enough information was in it - it was almost like a Daily Mail headline, so I went back and asked you for more information.

    Your headline was written badly in the hope that some people saw the word "your" between "for" and "gimp".
    It wasn't there, so the word "a" could also be used, or "my".
    To be able to give an actual answer to a hypothetical question, I needed more information from you.

    Now, if you had asked the question with "your" in it, I would have pointed out some things which you are already fully aware of:
    1. I don't run it as a business, it's purely personal.
    2. The paperwork I sent to you with instructions on how to put it on yourself contained details that you did so at your own risk.
    3. I don't give refunds for ones that have obviously been used, as is clearly stated on page 23 of the terms held within the Item Description.

    So please stop asking for your 99p back.
